As we stated with the DA, we are really excited about the staff we have assembled in the DA and DPL this year. We take great pride in our staff as they create a positive, competitive, and safe environment for kids to grow. Our elite platform structure involves head coaches, assistant coaches, staff coaches, technical coaches, and a performance staff that we believe provide an unparalleled experience for our players. With all of the staff involved in every team, alongside each head coach, we feel we provide a unique development pathway. The staff brings years of experience, knowledge, and leadership. As we ask our players and teams to work together, our staff works together in everything we do and their support for the program is unwavering.
